From Green Right Now Reports
While the rest of America has seen plenty of video footage of drenching rains in Southern California, at least some state officials are seeking a long-term solution to assuring water remains plentiful in the Southland. At a congressional hearing earlier this week, water authorities insisted that the problems of farms and cities across the state will not be solved by the occasional freak storm.
“A couple of days of rain are certainly a nice relief, but they are a reflection of weather impacted by variable ocean conditions and are not the long-term solutions to addressing the issues that underlie our water dilemma,” said Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, who held the hearing.
